    I have been working at Global Data Consultants full-time

    Pros

    - Solid Technical Staff - From the people, to the management staff, to the culture - GDC is a great environment.
    - Young demographic with the motivation to grow.
    - The new offices are great!
    - Open Door policy
    - Company sponsored events
    - Recruiting team is very helpful and are available to connect with you as needed
    - HR Staff has been helpful, especially with personal benefit information and retirement fund.
    - Management has an interest in your well being with the company.

    Cons

    Company continues to grow and with growth comes change. If you're a go-getter and can adapt well, your chances of success are greater and opportunities will come. Mid-size company with big plans, wearing multiple hats are a norm. Not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continued improvement on communication to your teams. With everyone busy, sometimes this can get lost.

    Pros

    It's a great place to start your career

    Cons

    Pay is cut short most of the time. Was offered an initial start amount, but then was lowered and assured that perhaps by my 1 year I could earn the initial offer

    I worked at Global Data Consultants full-time

    Pros

    GDC is a friendly place to begin a career as an application developer. They provide good mentors to help you learn and progress through your career and help you learn multiple technologies. Everything is based around C# and ASP.NET MVC.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the noncompetitive pay. If there payment was higher, they would be a company I would stay with longer term.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to put into consideration the average salaries of the locations you are hiring in. You will attract more distinguished developers this way.

    I worked at Global Data Consultants full-time

    Pros

    -Family-like teams with many team building activities
    -Most teams are self-managed
    -Director-level management is fantastic

    Cons

    -Poor benefits
    -Pay is lower than industry average in most areas
    -Limited opportunities for growth (depending on department)
    -Leadership is not transparent

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate employees on a yearly basis and reward/reprimand them for their work. Share more. Your employees are behind you and are eager to know where the company is going / how they can help

    I have been working at Global Data Consultants full-time

    Pros

    - Accessible leadership and good company culture. Company is still growing so there are a lot of opportunities to make an impact.
    - Recruiters that actually take the time to get to know you. I have worked with a lot of bad recruiters, especially in IT. Everyone I have worked with at GDC has been responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful.
    - Good work/life balance.
    - Employee appreciation events--company picnics, potlucks, and a big annual company event around the holidays.
    - Technical teams are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    - Company is still growing, so you have to be flexible with learning new processes and technologies. It's definitely not for everyone. If you are willing to embrace change and take initiative, you will do well and advance.
